Services and Price Structure

Writing Coach ages 8-adult

I have worked with kids and adults to improve their reading and writing, both in Writing Centers and privately. Whether you want to improve your essays, reports, business communications, or stories, I can help you.

Online tutoring - all ages

Work on your English conversation, your writing, or your study habits with one-on-one online tutorials. If you have enough data to Skype, you can learn online from wherever you are. Online sessions: $18.

Study Habits ages 8-adult

If your student has fallen behind due to disorganization or homework reluctance, I partner with you to offer concrete, significant help. Accountability to another person in a no-frills environment can be one of the keys to helping underachieving students work up to their potential.

I do homework supervision and teach effective study habits, taking into account the different learning styles and challenges unique to each individual.

My services start with study habits, but I also do supervised homework and catch-up strategies for students who may know how to study but have trouble prioritizing it. Note that parents must be present for initial sessions.

ESL Conversation Partner - all fluency levels

I work with students of English to build vocabulary and fluency in one-on-one conversation, and help students understand ESL homework. I also help otherwise fluent English students hear and produce the sounds unique to English.

Creativity Coach - teens and adults

I coach adult writers, actors, and artists who feel creatively "stuck" or who want to produce a specific work. Whether you need structure, a timeline, an accountability partner, or mind-stretching exercises, contact me to schedule a free phone consultation.

College Admissions Essays

I can help students with their admissions essays by teaching them strategies to hone down their topics and personalize their essays. While admission isn't guaranteed by a great essay, I can help students write a strong personal essay customized to their preferred university.
